If you own a Porsche, Mini, Mercedes-Benz or BMW, you likely know Pelican Parts. Its an impressive online parts business that carries lots of great stuff, and nearly always has the right parts in stock. They carry new Porsche original, high quality aftermarket, and racy stuff.
Nice people, and also maintain a fabulous collection of Porsches. They also put on, about once a quarter or so, a really outstanding Cars N Coffee type morning cruise in that they choose to call Coffee and Cars, not wanting to appearing to be ripping of SoCal Orange County’s original Cars N Coffee, which is sadly no longer extant.
Anything is welcome at Pelican’s events, but as you might expect, they’re more sports car focused that muscle or hot rods. No matter, it’s all free, the parking lot is huge, there’s a Starbucks on property, and 400 cars in a morning isn’t unusual. I make it when I can and suggest you try it at least once if you are a junkie for these things like I am.
You can also sign up to get email notices and reminders via their site at www.pelicanparts.com to do so.
Here’s some pix and I honestly don’t remember if Kirk Gerbracht took them or me, but it don’t matter a lot since we were probably both there at the same time and saw the same stuff.
Hope I see you there at the next one…
